San Clemente, Calif. – August 1, 2023 – Nomadix, a social purpose corporation and makers of The Only Towel You Need®, made from post-consumer recycled materials, is proud to announce that it has been recertified as Climate Neutral for the second year in a row.
“The textile industry is responsible for 10% of all global carbon emissions. To put into perspective, that is more than all international flights and maritime shipping combined,” said Nomadix Co-founder and CEO, Zack Helminiak. “We believe that all businesses have a great responsibility and should take ownership for their impact on the planet. Through the great work of our team, we recertified Climate Neutral for the second year in a row by offsetting our full 2022 greenhouse gas emissions.”
Nomadix made big strides toward its goal of reducing overall emissions by 2030 through the hard work of its team on the brand’s Roadmap to Sustainability which was established in 2022. The Nomadix Roadmap to Sustainability includes six action items for change: reduce air freight shipping emissions by 50% in the next two years, transition to at least 50% renewable energy at Nomadix HQ office/warehouse, remove 100% of virgin plastic from production, transition from 2-day air to ground shipping across all D2C shipments, switch 3PL warehouse equipment from LPG to electric, and expand end-of-life solutions for its products.
“Reaching climate neutrality means we’re removing greenhouse gasses from the atmosphere at the same rate that we’re emitting them,” said Mia Helminiak, director of community engagement for Nomadix. “We offset 100% of our emissions with the help of our partner organization, Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF), to support removing emissions from the environment as well as avoiding emissions from energy and industry. However, offsetting is a temporary fix, which is why we’re committed to further action toward positive environmental change. With the Nomadix Roadmap to Sustainability and a bold list of commitments, we plan to cut our emissions in half by 2030. Next steps? Holding ourselves accountable for our impact.”
